However, beyond the scope of the business, Thaba-Bosiu Risk Solutions ploughs back into communities in order to foster development and motivate young people to achieve their dreams.
Seturumane said since she grew up in the area, she found it necessary to give back to her community in order to motivate students at Boribeng primary and high schools.
She urged students to be well disciplined, listen to their parents, elders and teachers so that they stay on the right track and manage to achieve their dreams.
“My core message to you is that; your background does not determine your future, what you are today and tomorrow, depends solely on you. Look where there is light, because education is the key and your future light,” Seturumane said.
She added: “There is a voice inside you that whispers every day. It instructs you on what is right and wrong. We are the ones who create circumstances to be unbearable to us. Be confident and patient as perseverance conquers.”
Seturumane said if she managed to achieve her dreams, then all Boribeng students can also succeed in their endevours.
She said although Boribeng is a remote area, both parents and teachers should motivate and support the students to pass in their studies.
Area Chief, Lekhooa Tsepo expressed gratitude to the sponsors for their effort to motivate the children at Boribeng.
Speaking on behalf of the two schools, Machoba Stapple thanked Seturumane and her partners for their commitment towards developing the students.
“I urge all students to heed their worthy advice.”
